tuukka rask octopus

Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask was almost hit by an Octopus during the National Anthem prior to Game 3 of the first round of the 2014 NHL Eastern Conference playoffs.

It was the second octopus thrown on the ice by the Detroit Red Wings fans but came so close that it caused Rask to flinch.

I could only imagine how pissed I would be if I was drilled in the face by an octopus.

Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick is a big professional wrestling fan.  He showed just how much by dressing up as the Ultimate Warrior, who passed away last week.  Reddick wore the famous arm tassels, a mask with the Ultimate Warrior’s face paint, and a Ultimate Warrior logo shirt.

Unfortunately, the video is pretty uneventful except for Reddick sprinting from the bullpen in homage to Warrior’s entrance to the ring.  This video could’ve been amazing if Reddick started yelling and speaking nonsense like the Ultimate Warrior use to do in his interviews.

If you’re going to do it, you gotta go all the way.

If there is one moment that sums up why the Golden State Warriors will defeat the Los Angeles Clippers in the opening round of the 2014 NBA Playoff, it’s right here when Blake Griffin “inadvertently” threw water on a Warrios fan behind him.

Griffin was frustrated all game as he was constantly in foul trouble and eventually fouled out in the final seconds of their 109-105 loss.  While watching the video monitor of his final foul, he threw his hands in the air, which resulted in a full cup of water being thrown on the few Warrior fans behind their bench.

Griffin said it was an accident. Bullshit.

But the fact that he let a few Warrior fans get in his head, shows that he doesn’t have what it mentally takes to win in the playoffs.

Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville grabbed his crotch in frustration during a Game 1 loss against the St. Louis Blues in the opening round of the 2014 NHL Playoffs.

We take Quenneville’s crotch grab to the telestrator on this brand new episode of Ride The Pine.

By the way, Quenneville was fined $25k by the league for the gesture but he gave us a GIF that keeps on giving.

Joel Quenneville deez nuts

Xander Bogaerts Butt Tweet

Last night, the Boston Red Sox won a marathon 14-inning, 5 hour game against the Chicago White Sox. It seems that Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts was blowing off some steam on Twitter after the game, when the photo above was sent out to his followers around 2:30pm EST.

The photo was tweeted with just the letter “L.”

Bogaerts promptly deleted his Twitter account, which is going to hurt his “my account was hacked” defense.

If we had to guess, this girl sent him this picture in a Direct Message and when he went to reply, he retweeted instead.  Step-up your Twitter game, Xander.

Here is another screenshot of the tweet.

Drake Kentucky

…and those who jumped on the bandwagon.

The University of Connecticut became one of the most surprising NCAA Men’s Basketball champions after their 60-54 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats. The 7th-seeded Huskies returned to tournament play this year after serving a one-year ban for multiple academic violations.

Drake jumped on the wrong bandwagon during the Final Four.

Who needs enemies when you have friends like Dwight Howard? The seven-foot Houston Rockets center posted the picture above on his Instagram feed on April Fools Day, which painted in some hair on Lebron James’s receding hairline.

If I was Lebron James, I would photoshop the Larry O’brien trophy in Dwight Howard’s hands and say April Fools back.

Lebron, feel free to use this as retaliation.

Former 1979 AL MVP and current Angels hitting coach Don Baylor suffered a fractured right femur while catching the first ceremonial first pitch of the season.

Former Angels great Vladimir Guerrero threw the ball towards dirt which caused Baylor’s leg to twist in a gruesome manner. It took a few seconds, and assistance, for Baylor to get back to his feet.  He tried to take a step on his right leg but his body buckled and it was clear that something was seriously wrong.

The bizarre breaking of his leg was influenced by a type of cancer, called Multiple Myeloma, that Baylor was diagnosed with 11 years ago. Multiple Myeloma creates soften spots in your bones and makes one susceptible to breaks.

Fucking cancer.

Over the weekend, the Arizona Wildcats suffered a loss to Wisconsin in the the Elite Eight of the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament.  Arizona students took to the streets after the upset loss to the Badgers, which caused the local riot to show up in an effort to disperse the gathering.

Out of this confrontation between students and police, a star was born.  His name is Alex Davidson, now known as The Terminator of Tucson.  Davidson was captured on video being repeatedly shot with pepper balls, withoutflinching.  In fact, he walked towards police.

I don’t know how this guy didn’t react but judging by the welts he displayed on Twitter after, it had to hurt.

Here is the original video that went viral.

Louisville Couch Fire Warning

The University of Louisville On-Campus Housing department is putting up flyers in preparation for the big in-State Sweet Sixteen matchup with the Kentucky Wildcats by informing their students that “Couch Fires aren’t cool.”

Apparently this is a thing that needs to be reminded.

I’ve seen couches catch on fire before, but it was because some drunk jerk fell asleep while smoking a cigarette.

Peyton Manning Denver Broncos signing

The 2014 NFL owners meetings are currently going on in Orlando and by the sound of it there is so much bullshit being talked that it is hard to figure out what is truth.

This interesting tidbit was posted by SI’s MMQB and discussed the negotiations that took place when Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos.

Tom Condon relayed the fascinating and humorous story of Peyton Manning’s free agency. With 12 teams interested, Condon licked his chops, anticipating a certain record-breaking deal. Manning, however, was in charge; he would make four visits and then decide. Now down to four instead of twelve teams, Condon was disappointed but still confident in a megadeal. Manning, however, said he wanted to pick the team first, before any negotiations would ensue, meaning Condon was now down to one team to negotiate with. And when Manning picked Denver, he simply asked Condon:

“What does Tom Brady make?”

“$18 million a year.”

“Then I don’t want to make a penny more than that.”

Condon’s visions of a $25 million a year deal were dashed, although the Broncos’ opening offer was $19.4 million a year. Condon phoned to tell Manning, who was incensed:

“I told you I didn’t want to make more than Brady!”

Condon apologized, hung up and called Manning’s wife, who responded, “I’ll take care of it,” and coaxed Manning to accept the Broncos’ offer.

If this story is true, Manning has some serious emotional issues with Tom Brady.  You get “incensed” when a team offers you more money than Tom Brady?

Couldn’t have been that angry because you took the money anyway.

Kings Twitter fight with Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers are hosting the Los Angeles Kings tonight which marks former Flyer and current King Jeff Carter‘s return to the organization that drafted him back in 2003.

The Kings tweeted out the first barb, showing a picture of Carter holding the Stanley Cup he won with the Kings in 2012, sarcastically stating that they were “not sure why” the Philly fans were booing.

There is something very unhockey-like about fighting with hashtags.

Stanford Band Dance

The Stanford Cardinal pulled off a major upset in the Men’s Basketball NCAA tournament with 60-57 victory over (2)Kansas.

Despite the Round of 32 upset win, the Stanford band has become a bigger story after CBS cameras caught they rocking out like crazy during the game. There were even initial reports that band members were caught smuggling alcohol in their tubas, that turned out to be false.

Either way, this band knows how to have fun…and probably drank before the game anyway.

Roddy White Duke bet

At the beginning of this week Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was discussing the Duke Blue Devils‘s chance to win the Men’s 2014 NCAA basketball tournament.  White claimed that Duke would win it all. He was so confident that when one Tweeter claimed that the Mercer Bears would pull off the upset, he offered “season tickets 50 yard line first row.”

By now, you know Mercer pulled off the major upset.

Instead of owning up on his bet, White said he would give tickets to “the bears game.”

Bitter, Roddy? How about you man-up and give this guy season tickets like you offered. Typical Falcon, act like you’re going to do something and then fold like napkin when everything is on the line.
